2021 Fantasy Outlook
The fifth overall pick in 2017, Davis had a rare fourth-year breakout in 2020, setting career highs across the board while his 10.7 YPT placed him second only to Justin Jefferson among the league’s 90-target wideouts. He did this in an offense where Derrick Henry got 378 carries, and with a game-breaking receiver (A.J. Brown) on the opposite side. This year, Davis has a chance to be the top option with the Jets after signing a three-year, $37.5 million deal in March. At 6-3, 209, and with decent speed (an ankle injury prevented him from getting timed at the 2017 combine), Davis has the physical tools to be a star. He’ll compete for looks with slot man Jamison Crowder, last year’s second-rounder Denzel Mims and 34th overall draft pick Elijah Moore, but Davis is the favorite to lead the team in targets. Those targets will be coming from a rookie, BYU’s Zach Wilson, whom the Jets took with the second overall pick. Davis injured his shoulder at OTAs in May but is expected to be ready for camp.

Davis (groin) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Texans, Randy Lange of the Jets' official site reports.
ANALYSIS
Davis will be in street clothes for the third time this season, an unsurprising development after the Jets downgraded him Saturday from questionable to doubtful in advance of the Week 12 contest. With Davis sidelined, rookie quarterback Zach Wilson will have Elijah Moore, Jamison Crowder and Keelan Cole available as his primary options at receiver in his return from a four-game absence due to a knee injury.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2017
The fifth overall pick in 2017, Davis hasn't lived up to his pedigree during his three NFL seasons. While his per-play averages improved last year to a respectable 14.0 YPC and 8.7 YPT, he's been eclipsed by second-year man A.J. Brown on the depth chart, and the Titans don't throw enough passes to support two productive receivers, especially with Adam Humphries and tight end Jonnu Smith around. At 6-3, 209, and with good speed (an ankle injury prevented him from getting timed at the 2017 combine), Davis has the physical tools to be a star. And Ryan Tannehill should continue to be an upgrade over the departed Marcus Mariota, but it's hard to expect a breakout from Davis in Year 4 so long as Brown stays healthy.
The fifth overall pick in 2017, Davis didn't make the leap in Year 2 many had expected. Despite 112 targets, he scored only four touchdowns and had only two catches of 40-plus yards. Davis' efficiency was middling - 13.7 YPC and 8.0 YPT - and he had only three games with 70-plus receiving yards all season. Not all of this is on Davis, however. For much of the year, quarterback Marcus Mariota played with nerve damage in his arm and even had to give way on occasion to Blaine Gabbert. The Titans offense as a whole was below average, and the team wasn't able to find a consistent rhythm all year. At 6-3, 209, and with good speed (an ankle injury prevented him from running a 40-yard dash during the predraft process), Davis has the skills to do damage down the field, along with the frame and catch radius to be a factor inside the red zone. His focus seemed to wane at times (six drops) and the team used him erratically, targeting him 13 times Week 1 and 15 times Week 4, but then five or fewer times on six occasions. The Titans brought in slot man Adam Humphries this offseason, drafted A.J. Brown with the 51st pick and should have tight end Delanie Walker healthy again this summer, so Davis will have more competition for targets in 2019. Even so, we'd still expect him to be the team's top option, but for Davis to break out, Mariota needs to stay healthy.
The fifth overall pick in the 2017 draft, Davis had a disappointing and injury-plagued rookie season during which he managed only 11.0 YPC and a paltry 5.8 YPT, playing in a sluggish and predictable offense under coach Mike Mularkey. While the entire offense should benefit from Mularkey's departure, new offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur plans to simplify some of the routes and rely on the scheme to get Davis open. At 6-3, 209, and with good speed (an ankle injury prevented him from running a 40-yard dash), Davis is an explosive downfield threat who should operate effectively in the red zone, where he rarely saw work as a rookie. (Davis did catch two TDs during the team's playoff loss to the Patriots, however.) For 2018, Davis is completely healthy and should have a better rapport in Year 2 with QB Marcus Mariota. Rishard Matthews and Delanie Walker are still around to command targets, but Eric Decker is gone, and Davis wasn't drafted fifth overall to be a complementary weapon.
The fifth overall pick in this season's draft, Davis landed in an excellent situation, catching passes from an emerging young quarterback in Marcus Mariota. The Titans did also add Eric Decker to an offense that was run-heavy last season, but they'll likely open things up and be able to support multiple fantasy-relevant receivers as Mariota continues to develop. Davis figures to immediately have a regular spot in three-wide sets, along with a real chance to push Decker and/or Rishard Matthews for playing time in two-wide formations. At 6-3, 213 and with good speed -- an ankle injury prevented Davis from being timed at the Combine -- and excellent route running, Davis lit up college football the last four years, setting an FBS record with 5,278 receiving yards, many of which came against Big 10 defenses in out-of-conference games. January ankle surgery limited Davis' participation in May, but the team expects him to be healthy in time for training camp.
